Jane's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a water tank, and to pay for the installation of a complete drip irrigation kit that will help to improve crop production.

Jane's story

Hello, lenders! Meet 45-year-old Jane, an enterprising woman who hails from a remote village in the Nyamira region of Kenya.

Jane has been in the business of farming for the last seven years, and she says farming is the best activity she has ever engaged in. She is hardworking and very enterprising, and she enjoys farming as a way of giving her family a healthy lifestyle.

The Nyamira region has good climatic conditions for farming. Farmers like Jane engage in growing some varieties of vegetables and rearing livestock. Jane’s main sources of income include milk and vegetables. However, she also engages in some personal businesses to enable her to supplement her meager income.

Jane is taking out this loan to pay for a water tank and the installation of a complete drip irrigation kit. An irrigation system will ensure that she continually optimizes her use of water, and her crops will benefit from the constant water supply. Her output will therefore increase, as will her income.

She thanks her lenders in advance.
